It’s Really An Ant Planet

In case you’re wondering why you can never get rid of the pesky ants … here’s what some of them underground complexes look like …


You can check out Core77 and how he makes these molds. And apparently molten aluminum down ant holes is a solid way to kill them plus you get a nice sculpture …

“Scientists estimate that there are one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) ants living on the earth at any given time.”

    That’s over 160,000 ants per human being! Yikes !!

    Now, consider adding in all the flies, mosquitoes, cock roaches, locusts, aphids, fleas, mites and other various pest !

    We must give some credit to birds, bats and spiders which help to limit the numbers of these creatures.

    How many ants equal the weight of one person? Then again, after watching A bugs life, i,ll think twice about it.

    (MET: When you see those jungle ants basically strip down a fair sized beast in a few hours, you don’t wanna really want to know …).

    Interesting way to diecast… Mattel should discast one different “cars” for each living ant !… And yes, we will buy them all 🙂

    (MET: How about snails?)

    FIRE ANTS! Can’t get rid of them.

    (MET: Looks like molten aluminum or zinc* will do it! 🙂 *CARS made of zinc – those 55 extra Finn’s can finally be useful!).
